Overview of Mac NetworkMac Networks are groups of interconnected computers that allow for shared storage and faster data transfer used by many businesses. Ethernet shared storage is effective on Mac Networks because of its reliability, cost efficiency, and speed.
More Information on Mac NetworkA Mac network is an interconnected group of Apple Mac computers that are connected by Ethernet wiring, commonly using a managed switch such as the Edge-Core to route traffic between the network computers. Ethernet is the most popular standard interface for Mac networks because of its affordable cost and its ability to achieve the desired performance level for network users.
Other hardware technology that is used to connect a network includes Fibre Channel, but fibre channel is extremely costly compared to an Ethernet based solution. Ethernet shared storage network solutions may use Apple Xserve or Mac Pro systems as servers for shared data. They provide all of the security, flexibility, and performance needed when properly designed by a Mac networking expert like Small Tree.
